32-bit doesn't work on fedora core

I have a problem with getting running my PCMCIA Networking card after installing fedora (2.6 core - Toshiba Tecra 8000 laptop). The message is "device or resource is busy". The card is D-Link 32-bit but I already noticed that there is general problem with 32-bit cards because I tried also Planet 32-bit and it doesn't work and D-Link 16-bit works. I searched the web and I found that sollution might be disabling PNP in my BIOS. Unfortunatelly my BIOS has no such option. Maybe anybody knows how to disable PNP on kernel level (is there any boot option?).
What is more whilt booting the system system displays following message:
Disabling IRQ #11. Maybe it has something to do with IRQ?
Thanks for any help
